Hello everyone! We're happy to bring you our coverage of StarLadder Season 4's Finals. The final phase of the tournament will be played throughout 20-23 December, as usually in the Kiev Cybersport Arena and will bring us some exciting days of Dota 2 action!
 
The teams that managed to qualify to the semifinals are image Na`Vi, image FnaticRC, image Empire and image Virtus.pro. 
3 of  the teams in the top 4 are coming off recent tournament wins. Yesterday image Na`Vi crowned themselves as back-to-back GosuLeague champions, image Empire emerged victorious at ASUS Open 2012 (Final Battle Of The Year) 3 days earlier and just about 10 days ago image FnaticRC picked up their first offline achievement by defeating image NoTidehunter in the Grand Final of THOR Open.
 
All 4 teams are looking strong and on equal footing. Even though this might be one of the first tournaments that image Na`Vi isn't considered the favourite or even marked as underdogs, our team has always been a force to be reckoned with, especially on LAN finals!
 
Day 1 is coming up in a few hours so get ready to watch some Dota 2 and make sure you follow our coverage of the event!
